Han Yi Soo, 04 Sep 2015Too many flaws in Note 5, but I find something interesting at this and few other device samsun... morehi Han Yi Soo, the long story is a great explanation! thank you :) i was a note fans , i had ever used Note 2 (only for six months) then i changed it to Note 3 (used it for 18 months) and this year i decided to change my phone to iphone 6 (early 2015, first time using iOs) because i thought that samsung didn't give something new (i really didn't envy on everybody's Note 4), but when they launched the fifth Note, i was really amazed that they're brave enough to bring a non-removable battery and no card slot available on their new Note generation (which a lot of people will definitely complain about it) and it made me believe that samsung is moving on to the next level ,and i already pre-ordered it and i'll still keeping my iphone because iOs kinda made me love them, and i really kinda hate sammy for their update on Tab S, made it works slower than before (kitkat) :(
Amar Qayuum, 05 Sep 2015i always use it,even when it charging...and it also always overheat,but it aint affect the batteryThat's nice, but is it just a dumb phone? It doesn't matter - batteries have limited life cycles. My old Sonyerricson J220's battery stopped working, and had to buy a new battery for it in its 2nd year of use.
TheNeighbor, 05 Sep 2015That's if you don't do much with it. What is your smartphone? Explain bulging batteries.i always use it,even when it charging...and it also always overheat,but it aint affect the battery
Guys i found in dubai the model 920L is that normal one or fake please, appreciate your help please
Ah, what a difference a 128GB micro SD card makes with a 32GB smartphone - I just added some 57 episodes of my favorite TV show to be consumed over the next couple of months as background while working. I've also loaded 40GB+ of my entire music collection, again to be listened to while commuting or just background while working.
Yeah, you can actually carry more with a wireless portable HDD, but I only carry my phone with that spacious 119GB actual user accessed out of that 128GB micro SD card.

Many of us can figure that out without being told. If you can think of the idea so can they. So can I. Samsung engineer are way smarter than you. They already know more about battery more than you do. They have Master and PhD. They know more about battery technology. Even more than battery doctor website. You think they don't do proper research? They are as enthusiatic as you do. They have a lot of brain power there. If you so smart why don't you work in a lab and build your own battery and win a noble prize.

When you drop the Note.5 - the back GLASS WILL 90% shatter. And you're worried about the battery getting off? Nice logic there. Really nice thinking you got.
Yes, at least the battery didn't fall out - it's premium. Shattered glass, but it's premium.
The battery will eventually bulge inside, yet it's OK - it's uni-bodied and its premium. It's will be in danger of exploding when flexed in that state, but hey - it's premium. It doesn't have an IR remote control - but it's premium. Easily destroy your S Pen sensor when you stick it in the wrong way, but hey - it's PREMIUM. No memory expansion with only internal 32GB version in MOST regions of the World, but hey - it's PREMIUM!!!

non removable battery also gives a premium look to the phone.
Even with a Lithium Polymer battery that is sealed within the Note.5, it's going to expand if you'll not change it after 300 to 500 cycles. Basically, current battery technology has not changed for the last 20 years. Who cares, right?
Have a look with what happened with an iPhone 3G in 2011:
That's like after 2 years he's used that iPhone.
This is why it's a good idea with a removable battery so that you can inspect that battery from bulging from time to time. The expansion of the battery is bound to happen, and when that gets puntures, it can violently exploded with high heat. Imagine that happening in your pocket or while making a call next to your ear...
I cycle 3 new batteries for my Note 3, and bought my wife 2 new batteries for her Note 2, after signs of slight buldging on the batteries. I change new set every 18 months, so I know my batteries are effcient giving me more than 80% of their charge holds when they were new, and I'm safe from exploding danger.
I don't know why Samsung made the dumb move with sealed batteries, and fast charging actually accelerates their eventual ineffectiveness.
[deleted post]Exynos overheats the phone and the battery will eventually get damaged, does not matter the 8 10 time better or better constructed thing, plenty of new buyers are complaining about the exynos 7420, they r experiencing the same situation as S6 users.
Samusng lack innovation and idea of its own. They are always at the back side of apple iPhone. Samusng will be the next Nokia to fall.... trust me.... while Microsoft and apple will dominate
Today I finally bought a 128GB micro SD card for my Note 3. This is to replace my current 64GB which keep filling up. I'm pretty sure I'll be getting more than 100GB of space I can use.
If I got the Note.5, I'll have to carry around some OTG dongle to be sticking out because my region will only be supplied the 32GB version - NO 64GB! This is the level of absurdity of this so called excuse of a Galaxy Note.
I'm pretty sure other Note users are now wanting that Z5, because it can take a micro SD card. I personally wouldn't get it, but people who value memory expansion will actually consider it than this iPhone wannabe crap.
Very good design and camera features. But the most used feature of Remote control dropped is what will definitely impact the Note5. I myself bought an S4 to use the remote app which worked flawless on my appliances. If I wish to upgrade to Note5, I would say a big No for it doesn't seems a much difference expect on high price.
A smart phone/note should have a removable battery and external memory to attract or motivate the customers to buy the high priced product. In this sense Note5 is not customer friendly.
